Medical Devices​

A medical device is any product or equipment that is intended to diagnose, treat, or prevent a health issue. Their importance is fundamental to improving quality of life. Companies involved in the development, testing, and production of these devices must meet stringent quality standards. Dycem supports leaders in the industry by offering an effective process improvement to dramatically reduce contamination and the damage it can cause.

Contamination: The Risk to Medical Device Manufacturing

Medical devices are divided into different classes with varying levels of quality needs. They range in complexity from a bandage or syringe to an implanted cerebellar stimulator. Depending on the intended use, contamination and unwanted particles within manufacturing can be hugely detrimental. The use of cleanrooms and controlled spaces helps to monitor and minimize the level of contaminants from personnel, equipment, and environmental factors.

Common types of contamination found within manufacturing include dust, fibers, skin cells, bacteria and microorganisms, or other particulate matter. Static (ESD) can also be a contaminant for devices with an electronic component. The presence of a contaminant can cause a number of negative and costly outcomes including product failure and recalls, and more importantly the risk of infection to patients from a contaminated device.

The risks to a company’s brand, its profitability, and its people are too big to be ignored. Effective contamination control is essential for facilities to ensure the safety of the devices they produce.

Dycem mats, implemented as part of a contamination control strategy, offer optimal support in reducing the risk of contamination in Medical Device manufacturing.

Benefits of Dycem in Medical Device Manufacturing

Medical Devices

Superior Particle Collection & Retention

Particulate from shoes and wheels are captured on Dycem mats and remain on the surface until cleaned off. Environmental monitoring counts for Medical Device cleanrooms are reduced by keeping the unwanted particles out of the controlled space.



With Dycem mats installed prior to critical areas, our Pharma & Biotech customers have peace of mind that damage from microbial contamination is minimized. All Dycem products contain Polygiene Biomaster, and active anti-microbial additive.

WHO's List of Health Threatening Fungi

Check out the World Health Organization’s first-ever list of health-threatening fungi:

“The WHO fungal priority pathogens list (FPPL) is the first global effort to systematically prioritize fungal pathogens, considering the unmet research and development (R&D) needs and the perceived public health importance. The WHO FPPL aims to focus and drive further research and policy interventions to strengthen the global response to fungal infections and antifungal resistance.”
